So, to make the point as plain as I can: it is a "fail" in terms of loosing so many players in such a short time. And it is loosing players so fast precisely because it has problems which could have been avoided had the developers actually cared about the PC build.
This is a PC-centric forum, and most of us don't give a shit about consoles. What we care about is the state of PC gaming and how developers make games for it. Black Ops represents all that is wrong with development for a PC game: coming last in development in terms of care and attention; coming last in release of DLC; coming last in terms of promises made to us but prevaricating about them (i.e. delaying the promised mod tools) . This is what this thread is about - I posted it not because I am happy to see the game fail. That couldn't be further from the truth. What this thread represents for me is that my beloved franchise is being shat on from a great height, and it is breaking my heart. I would rather they stop making the game for PC rather than see the PC community go through a similar history again with the next COD title.
